Paxman

Sarah Hymas

I really like doing interviews. They take me a long time because I tend to mull things over and come back with big lists of follow up questions. I also like them because it makes a change being able to ask questions rather than being the person answering them all the time.

In real life, I don’t ask too many questions of people. There’s something about it that feels a little impolite. But when I email interview other writers I can get stuck in.

Which is another way of saying that recently I interviewed the poet Sarah Hymas – mainly about her collection Host which was recently published by Waterloo Press. But also about using autobiographical content in your writing, the ethical responsibilities of a writer, what sucess means, puppets and boats.

There’s a tasty giveaway, so read on here
